Kiunsys and Deutsche Telekom join forces for smart city project in Pisa
Today June 24, 2014 in Pisa there was the official press conference to launch the Smart Parking Project signed by Deutsche Telekom in partnership with Kiunsys and the City of Pisa. The project, realized in the historic center of Pisa to optimize the inner city parking, to reduce urban traffic and to analyze Big Data Traffic, is the first important result of the partnership between Kiunsys and Deutsche Telekom, the leading European telco company. Kiunsys, in fact, was selected by Deutsche Telekom as their technological partner of smart city solutions for urban mobility in Europe. The choice, made after a technological and market research on the main emerging realities in the world, further rewards the constant commitment of Kiunsys in developing innovative and practical responses to the urban mobility needs.
Pisa implements Info-Parking with parking occupation sensors made by Kiunsys
The pilot project concerns an infoparking system: thanks to 72 Kiunsys Parking Spot Sensors installed in Piazza Carrara, in the historic center of the city, motorists will find parking more easily by consulting Tap & Park, the smart parking app by Kiunsys, or following the digital route signage displays. Avoiding vehicles cruising for a free parking space will make a significant contribution to the reduction of total traffic and urban pollution. Also, Big Data produced by the system will allow to analyze traffic flows in order to optimize future solutions.
Founded in 2011 by the collaboration of three Italian companies focused on research and innovation in smart mobility, in less than three years Kiunsys has become one of the major players in the market of Smart Urban Mobility, Smart Parking and City Logistics, achieving a significant market penetration – 600,000 RFID Mobility Pass, 162,000 tourist buses permits, 27,000 eCUDE RFID, 1,200 parking sensors in 25 Italian municipalities.
